It required a great deal of research, a set of stays, chemise and a lot of hand sewing. I guess I needed a break after that.
So, getting back to business, I decided to make a quilt. I had wanted to make something for our niece, so I decided this was perfect.
OH MY GOSH. I thought the math would kill me. I decided to use 6.5 inch squares. I used a solid color for half, then rotated with the prints.
It was the first time I had used my sewing machine. It was a gift from my parents for our wedding.
I tied it off with green embroidery thread. The whole process took probably 4-5 hours.
